    Someone posted a request to allow an assignment to be muted without muting the Peer Review feedback.  A professor here has the inverse of that request:  Mute the peer review feedback without muting the assignment.  His reasoning is:

     

    "My students told me that the peer reviews they write that their peers can read sound much different than the reviews they write when the instructor is the only reader…"

     

    I have to say that this corresponds to my own experience as a peer reviewer, and is an understandable aspect of human nature.
